I was up all night/early morning. Between the heat, humidity and all the thoughts going around and around in my head, I couldn't sleep. In the
silence I looked out at the darkened skies, alone in my solitude and reverie. I have been thinking for a very long time about the world and the chaos
and insanity that has become the norm. I was thinking about greedy corporations and governments and how money and power matter more than human
How many things have we fought for over the years to no avail? All the while watching as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It has always
been us against them and things are getting progressively worse.
People gather together on Facebook and forums etc. to speak of the injustices, to share thoughts and feelings. I want to know what the best solutions
are. Do we write and call our representatives? Do our votes count when we elect our officials? Do we try for peaceful protests? Do we do those things
We have people starving all over the world when there is no need. We have cruel and greedy corporations and governments without a conscience, who
think more of money and power than human lives. This is sick! We have people who are jobless, people without medical. Our environment is polluted,
wildlife is dying, people are dying.
We desperately need to save the earth and ourselves. We need alternative resources that won't devestate the eco system, wildlife and human beings.
Greedy corporations and governments need to be held accountable for their greed in whatever manner it takes place, for failing us.
People of today are far too complacent sitting back and letting others try to take care of things. Each and every one of us united together can make a
difference. We have to.
Think of the starving people who are nothing but bone and skin and silent tears with voices that are not heard. Think of the people who have no clean
water to drink. Think of the people who desperately need medical care and will die without it. Think of the environment, our air, water and food, all
the things in which we need in order to survive and all the pollution. Think of all the injustices in our world and ask yourself, will I sit idly by
and allow it to continue?
What are the answers? Where do we even begin?
This thread was made not to discourage, but to come together in awareness and compassion. Share your insights and suggestions. We need each other more
than ever. It matters not how many miles seperate us, but how we can unite in spite of them.
